The SEC has become one of the premier volleyball conferences in the nation. The 1996 NCAA Volleyball Tournament featured two teams (Florida and Arkansas) from the Southeastern Conference. The SEC has had at least one team advance to the regional round in every NCAA Tournament. Florida's appearance in the NCAA semifinals in 1992 and 1993 marked the fourth straight year the SEC Champion had represented the league in the NCAA Final Four. Florida again reached the semifinals in 1996.
